  1. All I've seen are bullpen catchers umpiring when seeing shots from the scrimmage games
  2. Very leary of anyone who doesn't have ANY feedback yet. For me, that's a big 'buyer beware' flag ....

    Balk or not?

    ....especially when they don't know the rules!

    Balk or not?

    Understood. This play shouldn't be causing much debate at all. Sometimes you just have to umpire. If you're not 10000% sure that the pickoff is to delay the game, then it's a pickoff move where F6 didn't move properly. I wouldn't pick up the dirty end of this stick

    Balk or not?

    Aside from me (and I don't count for that much) but ..... aside from me ....you have a few of the best rules people on this site already responding. You have your answer, but someone else will be on here to tell you how 6.02a 8 or 6.02 c 8 doesn't apply in this situation. After briefly looking at the rules online .... no, your assumption for the rules you mentioned is wrong. There isn't any delay of game here, as the pitcher moved to make a pickoff, and the shortstop wasn't there .... that in and of itself is an 'attempted play' ...albeit not a good attempt, but still an attempt.

    Balk or not?

    based on what I can see in the video, .... THIS ABOVE from maven is correct. This would NOT be a balk
  7. This topic is way off topic, and quite frankly not garnering much attention. If you'd like to discuss the UE UNcap .... start a new conversation on the equipment forum. There is some good info here. I do believe however, there is already a thread about this product. CAVEAT: 1) ANYONE can do this, it's easy 2) I'm not doing this because I'm mad my topic isn't getting traction, ...I'm doing it so important info isn't lost and it's easy for others to find
  8. Nice job. For me, I would have brought that 'gap plate' down just a touch to be more in front .... that's how I have my Douglas gap on mine (but THAT'S ME...it doesn't make yours wrong)
  9. So .... you MADE THOSE SHIRTS from other 'red' shirts?
  10. @JimKirk .... you quoted the wrong person . I read the email blast properly, (I thought I didn't when Matt questioned it, THEN HE realized he read it wrong) ....and that's why the post is titled "INTERESTING" because it says there's NEW GEAR coming! After response number 2, ...there's no overthinking here, and ZERO speculation, we're just excited to hear that there's new gear coming!
  11. LOL!! I think you're right. They're probably working on a partial crew right now and the inventory is either low, or they just haven't changed anything online yet
  12. No, ...it says right in the email headline that there's a new CP and shin guards coming this Fall .... or am I losing it?!
  13. An email from Ump-Attire today ...... VERY interesting!
  14. OK STOP! We're talking about a baseball game, nothing more, nothing less. NO ONE, and I MEAN NO ONE is going to feel "challenged" or "disrespected" if an umpire looks a coach in the eye, smiles and greets him at the plate meeting introductions. I don't care what his nationality may be.
  15. Meh..... I'm from Michigan. It depends on the situation. Plus, ... 99.99% of the time, the coaches keep theirs on also..... no biggie Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  16. @MadMax ... your posts always make me laugh! (in a good way!) You are correct, I've begged Brad and he says "NO" .... (asked him 10 times at least). Anyhow....yes, mine is handmade that I VERY PATIENTLY cut to size to fit. Now, it doesn't fit that great, but if you don't examine it too closely, it still looks pretty good! This junior sized one however, ....not THAT has me intrigued because my FM visor is showing some mileage! Here's my MAG before I put a "samurai" TG on it .......

  18. Fair enough. I guess, ....2010 was my first year back umpiring in quite a long time, and it happened 30 minutes from me ....so I guess it sticks with me more as a memory
  19. June 2 ... 'beginning of June' .... The catapult of replay review, not that big of a deal? Ok
  20. not on a 'safe/out' ......
  21. Couldn't do that back in 2010 Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
